When the pandemic broke out, her phone exploded and the calls didn’t stop.
“People realize how lonely they were when they were stuck in their home with no one else,” Chaben said. “It was like trying to meet someone.”
Chaben says you can still find someone special in the era of COVID-19. All you have to do is put on your mask and step out of your comfort zone.
“Make a different type of date and do something different,” she said. “Go to Detroit, go to Eastern Market, wear your mask, walk around, talk to someone.”
“Having been locked in the house for the past 10 months, I’ve really reevaluated what I’m looking for in someone,” said client Wendy Levitt.
Levitt says the pandemic has changed the way you view dating.
“I don’t want to go out with someone just to date someone,” she said. “I want to connect with them and I want to know, I look forward to being out there. I want to know that we’re going to have a great conversation and that we’re on the same page with everything.”
Now, while the pandemic is far from over, Chaben wants single people to have hope. In the meantime, she’s working hard to make her next match and help a future couple find love on their own.
“I love making people happy and that’s what I should be doing,” she said. “Everyone has a purpose and that’s mine.”
